fox pups : an update

Monday, May 16, 2016


I've got the perfect Monday morning blog post - a fox pup update! 

While I was at my parents for Mother's Day my dad called my youngest niece over to him and had her follow him up to the garage. Fifteen minutes later she comes walking down the hill with a basket full of fox pups. *Cue the collective "Awwww!"* I'm pretty sure kids and animals together ranks pretty high on the ultimate cute scale, at least it does in my book.

The fox pups are only a little over a month old but already they've grown so much. In my last post, in late April, they still had their eyes closed! They're also super speedy already. I don't recall how old Lady was when my parents got her but I don't remember her being this quick. Did you know foxes can run up to 30mph?! It's pretty crazy how quickly they grow up! Other than the obvious physical changes I could point out, I really don't have too much to say about them just lots of cute photos to share! Hope you don't mind! ;)


Hope you're having a lovely Monday!
xoxo

Just a note to add that foxes definitely aren't for everyone. They require a lot of work, care, and attention. Not to mention in most states they are illegal to keep as pets unless you have a license. They are very cute, obviously, but aren't exactly ideal pets. Please do your research!

  8. Oh my guhhhh!! A box of fox! The best kind :D

    P.S. I love how your dad always looks so disgruntled and generally displeased with having his photo taken. It reminds me of my dad and makes me chuckle.

    1. Haha! When I make him hold still so I can get photos he's usually grumbling "Are you done yet?!?"
